for me. my brother, david povich, my sisters in law, and my husband, steve sheppard, who makes everything possible for me. i would particularly like to thank my best congresswoman, eleanor holmes norton, who pushed open the doors for so many of us. [applause] thank you, eleanor, for all that you do. i am honored to accept this award in the name of all the brave women journalists who challenged the status quo, who rebelled at great risk against their bosses, who fought for equal opportunities in the newsroom against recrimination, reductions, and worse, and who paved the way for women to assume equal positions and pay in journalism.
